Aarhus - Denmark Cruises Destination Information

The Stunning Main Port of Aarhus - Denmark

Located in the geographical center of Denmark and on the east side of the Jutland Peninsula, Aarhus is the second-largest city in Denmark and the main city in the East Jutland metropolitan area.

Aarhus has two airports, Aarhus Airport and Billund Airport. At the junction of railway lines from all parts of Denmark, Aarhus connects itself with neighboring city conveniently. Aarhus also has a free bike sharing system, Aarhus Bicycler. Bicycles are obtained between April and October by placing a DKK 20 coin in a slot, and the coin is retrieved when the bike is returned. A great way to get around!

Places to visit:

• Århus Domkirke -- the tallest and longest cathedral in Denmark
• Den Gamle By -- an open air museum displaying the old original
buildings of several cities in Denmark
• Marselisborg Slot-- the summer-retreat of the Danish royal family
• Den Permanente -- a popular closed beach area
• Århus Teater -- the largest theatre in the city

Aarhus enjoys a temperate maritime climate. February is the coldest month and the weather can detract from the enjoyment of outdoor attractions, so it is better to visit during warmer parts of the year. The average during summer is around 17°C, so many tourists come to enjoy the brief but glorious warmth days. Another excellent time to visit is spring, which is the driest time of the year. Autumn is also a pleasant time, especially in September and early October.
